    Hi guys,

    i bought my Ps3 60GB Europe version. I then updated the firmware from 1.60 to 1.90 in order to play the games included.
    Then last nite i decided to join the ps3 network so then i needed to update to the latest firmware 2.01.
    So i used the online update method.
    It was copied to the harddrive.

    I started the install, it got to around 60 or 70% and the console reset itself. It then rebooted and said press the PS button to continue update. it restarted and all i can see is a blank screen.
    I've tried a soft reset. Don't know what else to do!

    Can anybody help Please!!

    Hold down the power button for like 15 seconds until you hear a few beeps and it'll do a reset. See if this fixes it.

    Now may be a good time to call Sony and ask for some troubleshooting.

    ya i called sony and they told me to do a soft reset as above, then to take out the hard drive and put it back in agian. But no good.
    i'm just worried about if i get a new one, the same thing will happen again. cos i don't think i did anything worng on my part. i'm used to firmware updates like these since i have a PSP.
